I prefer carolina's.

Expensive but try Carhartt. I stopped buying Redwings about five years ago even though I got a great discount on them. Things might have got better with them over the years but I couldn't keep any of the stitching in them. The Carhartt's I have now are three years old and still great boots(only have my steel toes showing. They've held up thru wet trench work and blacktop tar. Only wierd negative is I've laced them so many times I think I've sharpened the eyelets so I go thru shoelaces like crazy.

gtfo.....i'm not saying they are the most comfortable, but cheap (price/quality) THEY ARE NOT!

There's a reason 9-1/2 out of 10 utility lineman wear them.

the missing 1/2 percent are wannabe lineman btw.

I don't like heavy boots either, I prefer hikers, with or without steel toe doesn't bother me but I prefer to have the heavier toes, even if it's harder rubberized. I almost might go with a shoe this year. Low cut hikers in size 14 are hard to find these days and I don't want to custom order unless I absolutely have to, as if they don't fit good, I'll be ticked.

I phoned Marks Work Wear House in town here in regard to the Red Wing hikers, and the associate ordered a size 14 for me and he said if I didn't want them, chances are very high that they'll sell within a couple days time. It kills me that they have demand for bigfoot folks, but they carry mostly sizes 8-12. Arg.
